Why is a Healthy Gut so Critical for Health - Abby Grimm, MS, RDN, LD
Did you know there’s about 100 trillion bacteria in the gut and it’s a combination of good and bad that live in our digestive system.
This is also known as the gut microbiota and determining how healthy your gut is can dictate the outcome of how you feel on a daily basis. In this podcast, we speak with Dietitian Abby Grimm, who specializes in functional medicine and works with individuals to restore gut function to optimize health. We discuss what the microbiome is, what types of foods influence it in a positive and negative way, how probiotics fit into the equation, and things you may be doing to harm gut function.
